AMSTRAD TOP 20 GAMES (Part 1 of 2) by XYPHOE

Hi and welcome to my favourite and what I think are the best games on the Amstrad range of home computers! From the original CPC 464, through the Plus range up to the ill-fated GX4000 console! In the first part of 2 I run down games #20 to #10. Sorry I had to keep these short due to the YouTube time limit, I didn't want to have more than 2 parts to this and bore you! Also I meant to have this up last year in June!!! It was to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the birth of the CPC464, but never mind - I'm a busy guy and at least it's here now. It's just a bit of fun - hope you enjoy! gx4000.co.uk For more info on the machines please see - http CPC range - cpcwiki.eu Plus range - cpcwiki.eu GX4000 - gx4000.co.uk amstrad top 20 games cpc 464 664 6128 plus gx4000 gx 4000 retro gaming

I must say, this newsbot su**s a bit.
We have millions of new threads without replies in 1 forum.
Can't it open 1 thread for each news source only and reply it always when updating news?
When you put your ear on a hot stove, you can smell how stupid you are ...

Hahaha :D Well, it parses your YT RSS feed and translates it into a post... it's a script that runs daily and updates with any news it finds.

We're off-topic (there's another thread for the news in general), but: yes, it can be done so that new news items are posted as replies to one thread per feed. However:

-this won't give the news the push they deserve (effectively you will only be able to see the thread's title in the forum, whereas now you can scan the news titles)
-they will still appear in the Unread action and
-it's not that bad you drama queen! There were several that came out all at once when I installed the script, but it's much slower now!!!
